The 135‑room Canopy by Hilton brings contemporary feel to Portland, Maine’s Old Port historic district

PORTLAND, Maine and MCLEAN, Va. - Fathom Companies and Hilton’s (NYSE:HLT) lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton today announced opening plans for Canopy by Hilton Portland Waterfront, slated for spring 2021. Located on the corner of Center and Commercial Streets in Portland, Maine’s Old Port neighborhood, the 135-room hotel will be situated on one of the last remaining buildable lots. The property will also be home to an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar and restaurant overlooking Casco Bay, a first for the New England coastal city. 

“We are positively thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton to the historic Old Port neighborhood,” said Gary Steffen, Global Head, Canopy by Hilton. “We look forward to inviting guests to enjoy a locally- inspired stay as well as the one-of-a-kind dining and shopping venues while visiting Portland, Maine.” 

Fathom Companies will develop and manage the property. The development firm is in the approval process with the city, Historic Preservation Board and Planning Board and anticipates approvals in second quarter 2019 with a fall construction groundbreaking and spring 2021 opening. 

“Portland, Maine has a palpable sense of place – from Casco Bay views dotted with islands and lighthouses to cobble stone streets, exceptional food and drink scene and vibrant arts community – all with a welcoming New England lifestyle twist. Canopy by Hilton was a perfect choice for this new property and travelers looking for a distinctly Portland, Maine experience,” said Jim Brady, President of Fathom Companies. 

Just-Right Rooms

Canopy by Hilton Portland Waterfront offers 135 Just-Right rooms, all of which are designed for ease and comfort. The design process utilized a strong contingent of local consultants and professionals, including interior design firm Ealain Studios that designed the space with local touchpoints. Amenities will include mobile check-in and complimentary Wi-Fi, and on arrival, guests will receive a welcome gift inspired by the Old Port neighborhood. 

Eat, Drink, Smile
